The Sass in Class

Certain classic elements can be a bit of snooze fest, but the opportunity to challenge the traditional can be incredibly fun. Sassing up the status quo is way more interesting than playing by the rules.

Zady executed the kind of twist I'm referring to with utmost perfection: the trench, reinvented. No preppy khaki color, no fancy collar or excessive adornments. Just pure, minimalist structure, complete with a slate hue that acts both as a blank canvas and a statement.

Versatility at its finest.

Birthday Suit

I'll keep this post quite brief: it was my birthday last week (the 18th) and since it was on a Wednesday, I decided to wait until Friday for some kind of celebratory shindig.

Here's what I wore for my party on Friday night, which was awesome, by all accounts: the weather was cooperating, the brews were flowing, and the company was outstanding. I figured I'd play the game and claim the center of attention with multiple pops of red.

Paging May Flowers

Zady shirt, Celine Edge bag, Miu Miu leather pants, Free People boots, Topshop bomber jacket, Ray-Ban Lennon sunglasses

We all know how the famous saying goes: April showers, May flowers. Looks like they got confused this year cause so far it's only been May showers, ugh. Lucky for me, these were shot end of April when it was still nice out.

Totally ready for a full dose of spring.

That said, this shirt by Zady is pretty much the most perfect transitional piece. It provides enough coverage for right now, aka during this unexpected chill, but it's also super lightweight, which is going to be ideal for when the sun eventually decides to come out. The best part about it other than the fact that it's rad as hell? It's made from organic cotton and was produced in a 100% ethical way.

And with that in mind,maybe we should start a support group for those of us who are getting screwed by May.
